2.7 upgraded projects not opening in Windows version

I’ve had very few cross-platform issues with Scriv, working with both the Mac and Windows versions equally. However, after upgrading to the Mac 2.7 version and updating my existing projects, I now cannot open those projects in Windows.

It gives me a message about them being a newer version and suggests I update the app, but my version is up to date. Alas, I may be waiting for the next update to the Windows version before Scriv is truly cross-platform again, which is unfortunate.

If anyone has a similar workflow and has found a workaround, please let me know. Otherwise, I hope this message can act as caution to someone who also goes back and forth as I do.

The Windows version will be officially updated soon, but there’s already a beta that uses the updated format here:


Hope that helps,

That does indeed, Keith. Thanks for the update. I’ll be looking forward to the update and will use the beta in the interim.
